Kinetic Magnet causes the enemy's hull to resonate, causing it to take greater damage from all kinetic sources. This resonance will also draw in all nearby mines and targetable torpedoes, regardless of their allegiance.

  • Game Description: Resonate the targeted enemy's hull to increase the damage they receive from kinetic weaponry. While in effect, an energy signature override will also convince all nearby mines and targetable torpedoes to be drawn toward the affected foe, regardless of their Friend/Foe status.
